Day of the Dead Vigil and Rally for Medicare for All in San FranciscoIn mourning the tens of thousands of lives lost, we demand Speaker Pelosi take actions to support the passage of Medicare for All into law!
On Saturday, October 30, we will be mourning the unnecessary deaths of 68,000 Americans annually due to lack of healthcare and also the estimated 285,000+ deaths since the beginning of the pandemic. We will gather at Alta Plaza Park at 12 noon. Protesters are asked to “dress as if you were attending a funeral.” We will carry a life-size coffin with the number “68,000” painted in red to Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s residence, which is arguably the most haunted place in SF, for her refusal and neglect to take action in the face of so many deaths in the United States of America, we will have a speaker lineup of local activists, representing medical professional, communities of color, immigrants, LGBTQ+ communities and leaders in SF neighborhoods which have been most affected by COVID-19 deaths. Please bring a photo of your loved ones who have been deceased. Please bring a copy of your medical bills, so Speaker Pelosi may visualize the amount of your pain and suffering. We will recite the names of the deceased. This is a peaceful protest. We strongly recommend protesters wear a mask during the protest.

Rooted in a network of local organizers, CodePink's tactics include satire, street theatre, creative visuals, civil resistance, and directly challenging powerful decision-makers in government and corporations. And, of course, wearing pink!
